Windows 7: Logon Wallpaper - automatically change w/ every logon

07 Nov 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

This is not something I have tried before.

However, if you're going to set it to run at startup, you might also need to change the parameters on the task's General tab to "run whether a user is logged in or not".

There is the possibility you'll also need to change the user credentials to LOCAL SYSTEM -- though I would try it without doing that, first.

Sorry - but I have never done what you are attempting and, honestly, have neither the time or the inclination to test it out, either.

Maybe someone else has experience running a VBScript from the task scheduler "at startup"?

I was running into the same issues until i did a little more research and found that the images will need to be less than 256kb or else they will not work. I know it's been awhile, but I hope this info can help someone thanks for the tut btw, works great

Hahaha. If this had been around a couple years ago, I'd never have gone to the trouble to write a VBScript to handle it.

On the flip side, my little VBScript does not require installing additional software; everything necessary is included in Windows, as long as you're willing to spend 5 minutes setting everything up. If not, then lsrotator is probably for you.
